8% Profit Target

We have an 8% profit target during your evaluation, which is the best in the industry. Traders are free to execute any strategy to reach this target, so long as we can replicate it.

 

Combine that with our other great parameters and achieving this is much more realistic.

90/10 Profit Split

As a serious Proprietary Trading Company, our business has grown and acquired more talented traders. As a result, we're able to match and create new industry standards with a 85/15 profit split.

 

We originally started with a 50/50 split back in 2019. As time goes by, our growth made it easier for us to improve conditions making it even more rewarding to become one of our proprietary traders. We do everything we can to make traders successful and our evaluations simple.

125% Refund

At The Trading Capital, we all know how satisfying it is to receive your refund with your profit split. We've gone ahead and made it little sweeter for our traders.

 

Not only do we provide the best conditions and parameters to help traders succeed, but we also provide a full 125% refund for traders on their first successful profit split.

No Restrictions for EAs, News and Weekends

When we say no restrictions, we mean it. As long as your strategy is profitable, respects real market conditions, you can use it.

We allow you to use EA's, use trade copiers, trade through the news and also hold trades over the weekend. All this in combination with the above, it's never been so easy to become one of our proprietary traders.

12% Maximum Drawdown

 

At The Trading Capital, we keep it simple and assist you in passing the Evaluation. We are one of the only proprietary trading firms that have a 12% maximum drawdown restriction and a 6% maximum daily loss. This gives traders a lot more breathing room to execute their strategies.

The importance is having more wiggle-room is second-to-none. We understand mistakes can happen. You can now execute your strategies with more comfort and peace of mind.

Bi-Weekly Withdrawals

We know what it's like waiting for your withdrawal or your first profit split. The days of monthly profit splits are over.

As a serious Proprietary Trading Company, traders will able to access their profits quickly. You no longer need to wait 30 days and be tempted to over-trade. You can now get that first withdraw and refund a whole lot sooner, with absolutely no minimum withdrawal amount.

Scaling Plan up to $5,000,000

Want to add more capital to your portfolio? We're all the capital you'll ever need. If you're talented and do well enough, we'll increase your account size by 25% every 3 months if you're able to make 5% each of those months.

Simply put, make 15% every 3 months and we'll provide you with more capital, all the way up to $5,000,000.

The Trading Capital was started in 2019 and is a small Proprietary Trading Company located in the heart of Square One and beside the beautiful Monroe towers in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. We are located on the 15th Floor of 4 Robert Speck Parkway. Our firm began as private-only access for close friends, family and colleagues, operating through email and word-of-mouth.

As we moved into 2021, we became open to the public and launched our website, to give more people access to our platform. 

Our growth has been slow and steady. We don't do any fancy marketing or advertising. We aim for quality over quantity and ensure we have enough manpower and resources to help our clients.

 

Our goal was and always will be, to help people with the right skills and talents achieve financial freedom.

 

Due to the previous pandemic situation, our physical offices were not in use. We are fortunate enough to live in a time where we can operate at 100% capacity with and without an office. The nature of what we went through globally has shown us just how important it is to be self-sufficient and operate a business which is flexible and can sustain the financial needs of each individual, no matter the circumstances. We hope that everyone is doing well and we are doing our part to help traders around the world achieve financial freedom.

To contact us, please email support@thetradingcapital.com

Yours truly,

  • How much experience do I need to apply?
    When it comes to trading, experience is extremely subjective. What's important is being confident and having a proper trading plan that works. Our Evaluation is to see if that is exactly what you have. Regardless, we welcome everyone and give everyone an equal opportunity to become a proprietary trader with us.
  • I've signed up for an Evaluation. What's next?
    Congratulations, you're on your way to being one of our Proprietary Traders. Your Evaluation will be processed within 24 business hours and you will receive your credentials via the email associated with your PayPal account. Please note, if you have not received your credentials within 24 business hours, you must check your spam folder of your email as it will be there. Once your first trade has been placed, your evaluation will begin.
  • It's been more than 24 hours. Where are my credentials?
    All credentials are processed and sent within 24 business hours. If you still have not received your credentials, you are likely checking the wrong email. ALWAYS CHECK YOUR SPAM FOLDER AS WELL.
  • When does my Evaluation begin?
    Your Evaluation begins the moment you place your first trade. This means you can start when convenient for you. You have 3 months (90 days) to place a trade before your evaluation is forfeited.
  • How many Evaluations can I take?
    You can take as many Evaluations as you like and also multiple at a time, all the way up to $5,000,000. If you are a business, we have other options available. Please email support@thetradingcapital.com if you have questions.
  • What is the Profit Target?
    During Phase 1, all evaluations have a Profit Target of 8%. During Phase 2, all evaluations have a Profit Target of 5%. There is no profit target once you receive our Prop Trader account.
  • What is the Maximum Drawdown or Maximum Daily Loss?
    During Phase 1, the Maximum Drawdown is 12% and the Maximum Daily Loss is 6%. During Phase 2, the Maximum Drawdown is 10% and the Maximum Daily Loss is 5%. On the Prop Trader account, the Maximum Drawdown is 10% and the Maximum Daily Loss is 5%. All drawdown/maximum loss limits are based on the original balance of your account. Overall, we made the evaluation easier to pass and is the most competetive out of all the proprietary trading firms. Be sure to be aware of the 24-hour daily reset. This applies every 24-hour period starting from 12:00 AM EST (Toronto). Each 24 hour period begins/ends at 12:00 AM Eastern Standard Time (Toronto). Please determine your time zone difference correctly.
  • How does the Maximum Daily Loss work?
    The Maximum Daily Loss is calculated based on your current balance upon the daily reset. During Phase 1, you cannot lose more than 6% of the original base capital in a 24 hour period, which resets at 00:00 EST Toronto Time (07:00 broker time). If your equity falls by this amount or more in the same 24 hour period, you will violate the daily loss. The open/floating drawdown you currently have (if any), will carry-over to the next 24 hour period if you do not close those trades and will count towards your current daily loss. This includes the carry-over from Friday 5:00 PM EST to Sunday 5:00 PM EST. As the market closes on Friday at 5:00 PM EST, there is no daily reset over the weekend. When the market opens on Sunday at 5:00 PM EST, the daily reset will not occur until 7 hours later, at 00:00 EST Toronto Time on Monday. For example, if you have a $100,000 Evaluation, that means your maximum daily loss is $6,000. If upon the daily reset, your current balance is $100,000 and your current floating drawdown is -$5,000, and then you carry that drawdown into the next 24 hour cycle, that means that you still can only afford to lose $1,000 more or else it will count as a violation. However, If you were to close those trades, resulting in a -$5,000 loss before the next daily cycle, you would then go into the new day with no drawdown. You can now afford to lose up to another $6,000 on that new day.
  • What are the rules and violations?
    If any of the following items below occur on your account, it is considered a violation and your account will be terminated (Evaluation and Prop Trader): 1. Exceeding the Maximum Loss 2. Exceeding the Maximum Daily Loss 3. Trading any of the restricted symbols 4. Retail Arbitrage/Manipulation 5.
